For some unknown reason I am drawn to Frida Kahlo! Her life was a sad story but her art work was wonderful. This year the New York Botanical Garden held an exhibit of her work. My friend Richard Kapral, a Maine artist, knowing I was interested sent me a catalog from the show. It is actually a book of over one hundred pages about her and showing many pictures of her work. that got me in the Frida mode again and above you see one of several mixed media paintings of her that I have done. For this one I first painted the background then applied a section of a Mexican newspaper showing the womens news! She looks right at home! If you don’t know Frida check her out on your computer. you will find many interesting things! And maybe be inspired as I was!
